Brian Boitano Lived On Baked Potatoes And Salads While Skating

On "Bonnie Hunt" yesterday the hilarious talk show hostess and comedian had a cooking segment with Olympic figure skater and Food Network star Brian Boitano.

The cooking team started with a special cocktail Brian created called "Italian 88", his version of a French 75, which consisted of grapefruit juice, vodka and prosecco.  A decorative sugar cube was added to the champagne flute which held the mixture.  Brian explained you put a shot of each liquid.

Bonnie said "oh oh" as she sipped the champagne hued mixture with a beautiful frothy white top.

Bonnie smacked her lips in appreciation and said "Nick's (her band leader) looking good, in jest after having the first taste.  She said "it's good, strong, but not too strong.

Bonnie kept drinking and then the alcohol got to her.  She touched her face in reaction to the cocktail as if it already had an impact on her and said "one beer Bonnie, one sip of alcohol."

Then she got very silly and Brian started making comments that were full of inneundos. Bonnie said "Brian, clean it up, we're not in Vegas."

Meanwhile they baked pizza by rolling out the dough and adding a lot of different toppings.  While rolling out her pizza dough Bonnie made reference to rolling from "late 60s parties."

Brian said in response to Bonnie's comments "just from one sip of the booze?'  Bonnie "no, no, my mind goes like this all the time but I edit some of it.  Yeah, one sip of booze.  That's way I am, I'm a lightweight."

The segment continued to deteriorate and Bonnie said "everything's becoming dirty because of their minds.  I don't even get it." as she blamed all the double-entendres on the audience.  Brian said "you're so bad."  Bonnie said "I'm going to take the oil away from you."

Then she laughed and said to Brian "Don't you dare blame me for this train wreck."

Bonnie asked Brian how he went from skating to cooking.  Brian said "I never never ate regularly as a skater.  I had baked potatoes and salads.  I mean I was always on a diet."  Bonnie "did you worry about that when you were a kid?"  Brian "oh god, yeah.  Absolutely."

Bonnie "so you had to maintain a certain weight."  Brian agreed.  Bonnie asked "was that sad?"  Brian "no it wasn't sad it's just what you had to do (diet) but then when I turned 25 after the Olympics and I decided 'oh wow, eating is really cool.  I like this. And I discovered different recipes and I made things with my friends who used to come over to my house all the time."

Brian eventually nabbed his own show "What Would Brian Boitano Make?" on the Food Network.  His show was recently picked up for a second season.

Towards the end of the segment the cameras showed a photo of much younger Brian who had a lot of hair.  Bonnie teased him about his hair and told him he had the beginnings of a mullet.  Now Brian's hair is much shorter and there's a lot less of it.  He took it in fun as he did the entire segment which was definitely a little bit crazy but very Bonnie.

After they finished everyone in Bonnie's audience got to try the pizza.  Yummy.

Daily Hair Tip
In a Clairol Professional survey 33% of the respondents reported that they preferred to have their hair colored in a salon rather than risk doing damage at home. 50% of the participants said they liked their colorists best because of friendliness while only 38% valued good advice about haircolor or the fact that the colorist kept up on the latest trends.
